Hi Will... I just finished a 3-part, 6-hour TV series on the Roosevelts -- Teddy, Franklin, and Eleanor... and that quote by Eleanor was featured in the series.

Reactions to other people's behavior can either serve a person well or take it to a troubled place. Turning and walking away is sometimes best to avoid the circus and monkeys scenario, Will!

Hi Will- I do love all of the quotes!!!  When you understand that you can't control others but you can control your own actions, the sweeter life becomes.

Hello Will - as you know, I like quotes and that is true with your selection in this post.  As Margaret Rome Baltimore 410-530-2400 asked in her comment, I think some members would be interested in learning more about your memory of the sale of your family's restaurant business even if it was years ago.  That type of business is known to have some wonderful success stories but also some not-so-successful ones - I am sure there are some valuable lessons you could share of what to do as well things to avoid.

It sounds like your parents ran a great restaurant but the ones that took it over didn't do such a good job.

All good quotes! I'm sorry to hear what happened to your parent's restaurant. I bet that was disappointing.

Gee Will, your parents were probably successful in their business for many years and it took only a year to mess it up. Do tell the story...
